Ku Kahi

Ku Kahi is a Hawaiian phrase meaning "standing alone." I thought this was appropriate for the title of my first solo album. The songs were selected from many sources, some of which came from my many years of associating with hula halaus here in the San Francisco Bay Area. Others were selected because they were childhood favorites. The common thread is that all these songs soothe and comfort my soul, enabling me to connect my voice to my heart and the hearts of others. I hope you enjoy listening to these songs as much as I enjoy singing them for you.

Genre: Traditional Hawaiian.

Distinguishing notes: Faith Ako is a San Francisco-based Hawaiian artist who left the Islands 22 years ago. Based on her sound, she is the model of the "you can take the Hawaiian girl out of the country, but you can''t take the Hawaiian out of the girl" stereotype.

Indeed, she launched this CD earlier this year at Mystic Theatre in Petaluma, Calif., sold out the place and since has become the spirit of aloha among those who admire her.

She tackles a range of Island favorites, from Dennis Kamakahi''s "Koke''e" to Edith Kanaka''ole''s "Ka Uluwehi O Ke Kai," and imparts her own style and specialness to each. A medley of Kaua''i tunes makes one yearn to visit the Garden Isle. Other mele work magically in her hands: "Papalina Lahilahi," "Hilo One," "Miloli''i."
